This page is comprised of Suki's relationships with other characters in the Avatar World. Suki's strong, assertive personality was sometimes a hindrance; however, her compassion and loyalty allowed her to make many allies.

Love interest

Sokka

"I'm sorry ... I treated you like a girl when I should have treated you like a warrior."
Sokka to Suki.[1]
Interrogation at Kyoshi Island

Suki interrogated Sokka, as well as Aang and Katara, during their very first encounter.

Suki and Sokka first met when she and the other Kyoshi Warriors ambushed him, Aang, and Katara, who were temporarily visiting her homeland of Kyoshi Island. At first, the two were not on the best of terms with Sokka's sexist attitude irritating Suki. After Suki humiliated him during a sparring match, however, Sokka was humbled and personally asked Suki to train him. Suki accepted his plead on the conditions that Sokka follow all of her traditions and rules, which included wearing the warriors' dress. Eventually, after continuous practicing, Sokka was able to successfully block Suki's attack and knock her down. The two continued to train until Zuko attacked the island. The two worked together in an attempt to defeat Zuko, but to no avail. Realizing they needed to part ways, Sokka apologized to Suki, and she proceeded to kiss him on the cheek, causing him to blush.[1]

After Aang was arrested in Chin Village and held guilty for murder in a past life, Sokka and Katara journeyed to Kyoshi Island to gather information that would prove his innocence. When Sokka asked Oyaji as to Suki's whereabouts, Oyaji informed him that Suki and the other warriors had left to fight in the Hundred Year War. Sokka was clearly disappointed by the news of her absence.[2]

Sokka and Suki were reunited on the team's journey to Ba Sing Se. Clad in a security guard outfit and without her make-up, Sokka did not recognize her at first; he soon realized who she was when Suki kissed him on the cheek. Suki decided to aid Sokka and the rest of Team Avatar in escorting a group of refugees across the Serpent's Pass. Much to her annoyance, Sokka was very protective of her due to his traumatic experience with Princess Yue. That night, Sokka explained his reasons for acting overly protective. The two nearly kissed until he drew back reluctantly. The following day, Suki apologized for trying to kiss Sokka, but was cut off when he kissed her twice.[3]

Sokka and Suki did not meet again for a while as Suki was soon captured by Azula and imprisoned.[4] Azula taunted Sokka, mockingly stating that Suki used to mention him all the time while imprisoned, but gave up on him when he never came to rescue her. This caused Sokka to charge at Azula in blind rage, wasting the remaining time the team had to find the Fire Lord during the eclipse.[5]

Sokka and Suki kiss in prison

Sokka reunited with Suki in the Boiling Rock during his mission to free her and his father.

Sokka and Suki finally reunited again at the Boiling Rock where she was being held. When Suki first saw Sokka, she could not recognize him due to his guard outfit and pushed him backward. When she found out who he was, however, she happily embraced him, saying that she knew he would come. The two shared a kiss, only to be interrupted by Zuko warning them of an approaching guard.[6] When Sokka decided to stay at the prison for the possible return of his father, Suki opted to stay with him. Suki, Sokka, Zuko, Hakoda, and Chit Sang all escaped together on the gondola.[7]

Suki and Sokka once seemed to have planned to have a romantic evening together only to have it comically interrupted by Zuko.[8] When watching a play on Ember Island, a scene of Sokka and Yue separating was depicted; Suki teased Sokka about kissing the Moon Spirit. Sokka tearfully shushed her, so he could keep watching the scene with Suki expressing notable jealousy.[9]

While relaxing on the beach, Sokka created a crude sand sculpture of Suki which she considered sweet, despite his lack of artistic talent. Sokka responded by kissing her on the cheek, but the sand sculpture was destroyed shortly afterward by Zuko as he attacked Aang.[10] During the arrival of Sozin's Comet, Sokka and Suki, along with Toph, worked together to destroy the Fire Nation airship fleet. Midway through the mission, Suki was separated from Sokka and Toph.[11] She later returned, using a hijacked airship to successfully save the two.[12]

A year later, Suki arrived at the Beifong Metalbending Academy to meet Toph and Sokka, sharing a passionate kiss with the latter. Afterward, she explained how she was one of Zuko's guards and overheard a complaint from Kunyo about a "dirt girl" and a "snow savage", thus traveling to them to check it out.[13]

Allies

Aang

"Are you doing okay?"
Suki trying to comfort Aang.[3]
Suki and Aang

Suki was worried about Aang after finding out what had happened to Appa.

Aang and Suki met when she and her warriors ambushed him, Katara, and Sokka, on their first visit to Kyoshi Island. After Aang informed them that he was the Avatar, they began treating him and his friends as honored guests.[1] They met again at Full Moon Bay where she expressed concern for Aang and asked if he was feeling okay upon discovery that Appa was currently missing.[3] Suki later came across Appa and attempted to reunite the bison with Aang, only to be attacked by Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee.[4] Aang and Suki met once more when she escaped from the Boiling Rock.[7] Suki was apparently comfortable around Aang to the extent where she snickered with Sokka when Zuko sarcastically criticized the Avatar and grew anxious to find him when he disappeared.[10]

Appa

"It's our responsibility to get Appa back to him safely."
Suki to the Kyoshi Warriors.[4]
Suki and Appa

Suki found Appa in a disheveled state.

Suki first met Appa when he, Aang, Sokka, and Katara visited Kyoshi Island.[1] She expressed concern upon finding out that he was missing[3] and later discovered him in a cavern, where he was lost, afraid, and wounded. Although Appa was initially skittish toward Suki and the Kyoshi Warriors due to having been kidnapped earlier[14] and abused, Suki gained Appa's trust by offering him apples. She, with the help of her warriors, cleansed Appa until he was rid of the scrap and dirt that covered his fur from when he was lost. During this time, Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee ambushed the Kyoshi Warriors. Suki defended and saved Appa, despite she and her warriors being outmatched. She persistently fought, allowing Appa to escape in hopes that he would find Aang.[4]

Katara

"You look so different without your makeup!"
Katara to Suki.[3]
Suki and Katara

Suki and Katara were shocked at the thought of having found Aang on Ember Island.

Katara and Suki first met when Suki and the rest of the Kyoshi Warriors ambushed her, Aang, and Sokka. When she discovered that Aang was the Avatar, her village treated Katara and her friends like royalty.[1] They met again at Full Moon Bay and, with the rest of the group, escorted a band of refugees across the Serpent's Pass and helped deliver a baby.[3] When Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee infiltrated Ba Sing Se disguised as Kyoshi Warriors, Katara, thinking Azula was Suki, revealed to her that Zuko and Iroh were in Ba Sing Se. She soon realized the warrior to be the Fire Nation princess only to be paralyzed by Ty Lee, rendering her helpless.[15] She and Suki worked together to try to find Aang when he disappeared, however, their search came up unsuccessful.[10] Both girls shared a strong friendship and effectively cooperated with one another.

Kyoshi Warriors

"A bunch of girls, huh!"
―Suki defending her warriors from Sokka's sexist comment.[1]
Suki and two Kyoshi Warriors

Suki was the leader of the Kyoshi Warriors.

The Kyoshi Warriors respected Suki as their leader and shared a strong friendship. They were loyal to her and heeded her every command.[1][4][12]

Mai

Ending at Ba Sing Se

Suki and Mai, along with other members of Team Avatar, were not pleased with Sokka's drawing of them.

When they first met, Suki and Mai were enemies. Suki was forced to fight Azula while Mai assisted Ty Lee in disabling the other warriors, eventually leaving Suki as the only warrior to face Azula even as she was hopelessly outmatched. Upon the Warriors' defeat, Mai also stole their uniforms along with Azula and Ty Lee for use in toppling the Earth King. Suki and Mai did not meet face-to-face during the former's eventual escape from the Boiling Rock with the help of Team Avatar, as Zuko had locked Mai in a cell to defend his new allies. Despite this, Mai eventually intervened to save Zuko from the guards cutting the cables keeping the gondola suspended in mid-air, saving Suki in the process as well at the expense of her own freedom. It was not until after the War finally ended that Mai was released along with Ty Lee and the two of them finally made peace with Team Avatar. It would seem that Suki and Mai eventually formed a mutual bond as they played Pai Sho together at the Jasmine Dragon.

A year after the War's end, when Zuko was the victim of several failed assassination attempts on his life, Mai personally requested the aid of Suki and her team of warriors, of whom Ty Lee was now a part as well, to help protect Zuko at the Royal Palace, considering them to be far more competent than the Royal Guardsmen. It can be assumed from this fact that the two have grown to trust each other with the passage of time.

During this assignment, Suki learned of Zuko's continued visits to his father in prison, a fact he had hidden from Mai. Suki informed Mai of her discovery, but this backfired when Mai, feeling betrayed by Zuko constantly keeping secrets from her, broke off their relationship once more. Immediately after this, Suki apologized to Zuko, regretting the outcome of her actions.

Toph Beifong

"Oh, Sokka, you saved me!"
"Actually, it's me."
"Oh ... You can go ahead and let me drown now.
"
Suki rescuing Toph.[3]
Suki saves Toph

Suki rescued Toph from drowning in between the East and West Lakes.

Suki and Toph first met when the group was traveling on foot to Ba Sing Se. When Toph fell into the water after the serpent destroyed the ice bridge she was walking along, Suki saved her. Toph, thinking Suki was Sokka after calling for him, gave her a kiss on the cheek. Embarrassed upon finding out it was Suki, she asked the warrior to "let [her] drown".[3] Toph, Suki, and Sokka set out together on a mission to stop the Fire Nation airship fleet from burning down the Earth Kingdom.[11][16] When Sokka and Toph were surrounded on an airship by Fire Nation soldiers with comet-enhanced firebending surrounding them, Suki saved them, piloting a hijacked airship.

Ty Lee

"She's one of us now."
Suki explaining the union of Ty Lee to the Kyoshi Warriors.[12]
Suki and Ty Lee battle

Suki and Ty Lee fought each other during the escape from the Boiling Rock.

When Suki and Ty Lee first met, they were natural enemies. Even though Suki was unable to acknowledge Ty Lee because she was preoccupied with fighting Azula, it is likely she glimpsed what Ty Lee had done to her fellow warriors.[4] They met once more during her escape from the Boiling Rock where they battled on the gondola. During their battle, it seemed they were evenly matched.[6] When Ty Lee betrayed Azula in order to save Mai, she was imprisoned with the other Kyoshi Warriors. They bonded over time and after a few chi blocking lessons, they let Ty Lee join their group. Suki seemed happy with her acceptation.[12]

Zuko

"The Kyoshi Warriors are really worried about you, Zuko. I'm really worried about you."
Suki to Zuko.[17]
Suki and Zuko

Suki and Zuko watched as Azula and Ty Lee approached them during the escape from the Boiling Rock.

Zuko and Suki unofficially met when Zuko attacked Kyoshi Island in an attempt to capture Aang. Suki and her team of warriors fought to stop Zuko's rampage, as his firebending threatened to destroy their village. They were hopelessly outmatched, however, and eventually defeated by Zuko, although they did buy Aang and his friends the time they needed to escape.[1]

Suki and Zuko formally met at the Boiling Rock. By this point, Suki had been imprisoned in the Boiling Rock by Azula[4][5] and Zuko had reformed and joined Team Avatar.[18] While serving hard time, Suki did not hesitate to remind Zuko about his attack on her village many months before. Zuko recalled this event and apologized for his wrongdoings.[6] Despite the obvious animosity between the two, Suki cooperated with Zuko and Sokka in escaping the prison and freeing Sokka's father, Hakoda.[7]

After their successful escape and a brief humorous evening interaction outside Sokka's tent,[8] Suki and Zuko were on much better terms, as she spent time with Zuko and the gang at Iroh's tea shop in Ba Sing Se.[12]

One year after the Hundred Year War, Suki and the rest of the Kyoshi Warriors were hired by Mai in place of Zuko's previous bodyguards, after they failed to prevent an attempt on the Fire Lord's life. When Zuko awoke from his sleep in fear of another assassination attempt, Suki seemed genuinely concerned and reassured Zuko that he was not in danger. That same night, when Zuko went to secretly meet with the disposed Fire Lord Ozai under the guise of going for a walk, Suki, worried for Zuko, asked if he needed an escort, to which he declined.[19]

Suki worried about Zuko

Even as a guard, Suki personally cared for Zuko.

Later, Suki unintentionally provoked Mai into breaking up with Zuko after telling her about Zuko's late night meetings with Ozai. Suki was very sorry for what had happened, and apologized to Zuko, telling him, as she reached out for his hand, that she was very worried about him, though she was also alarmed to learn that he had sent spies to the Earth Kingdom.[17]

After Zuko departed for Yu Dao to defend the colonists from an incoming attack by Earth King Kuei and his army, Suki followed suit and returned to the Earth Kingdom in a war balloon to enlist Sokka and Toph's aid in stopping the battle. During the trio's efforts to slow down the incoming Fire Nation armored forces, Suki still expressed sympathy for Zuko in spite of his actions, suggesting that they should really try to talk things out with him instead. She also sadly remarked on how lonely Zuko seemed to be, showing that she still cared for him as a friend in spite of all that was happening.[13]

Enemies

Azula

"What do you want with us?"
"Who are you? The Avatar's
fan girls?"
Suki and Azula.[4]
Azula vs Suki

Suki and Azula fought each other as the former tried to protect Appa.

Suki and Azula first met when Azula, Mai, and Ty Lee tracked down Appa by following his fur trail. Even though Azula did not find Aang present as intended, she proceeded to attack Suki anyway. Suki drove Appa away successfully, however, she and her warriors were soon defeated by the trio.[4] Azula's team stole some of the warriors' uniforms and used them to successfully conquer Ba Sing Se by disguising themselves as Kyoshi Warriors.[20] Azula successfully tampered with Sokka's emotions by telling him that her favorite prisoner, Suki, used to mention him all the time before she gave up on him.[5] Azula and Suki met once more at the Boiling Rock. Instead of fighting Azula, however, Suki directed her attention toward Ty Lee.[7] The two met one last time when the Fire Nation princess assaulted the Western Air Temple, however, Azula was too preoccupied with trying to kill Zuko to acknowledge Suki.[8]

Ozai

"Yeah, or how about 'King of the guys who ... don't win?'"
Suki trying to mock Ozai.[12]


Suki briefly met Ozai along with Sokka and Toph directly after Aang defeated him. At first, Suki thought he was dead, but Ozai sadistically told her he was still alive, startling her. He was unable to follow through on his threat, however, as his bending abilities had been terminated through the use of energybending, leaving him powerless. Suki attempted to mock Ozai along with Sokka and Toph, only to have Toph tell her, "Leave the nicknames to us, honey."[12]

The warden

"Sorry warden. You're my prisoner now."
Suki to the warden.[7]
Suki captures the Boiling Rock warden

Suki secured the the warden during the riot at the Boiling Rock.

Suki was imprisoned in Boiling Rock upon her defeat at the hands of Azula.[4] When Sokka announced his plan to escape, Suki agreed to help. During the riot, Suki hopped up on the heads of the rioters, jumped, and flipped onto the tower. She reached the warden, tied his hands together and used his headband as a gag, allowing the escapees to secure him as a prisoner.[7]
